The City of Oroville is a charter city that incorporated in 1906, and is governed by an elected City Council and Mayor. The Council's actions are guided by a vision statement, mission statement, and goals and policies. Government business is conducted at the City Council Chambers located at 1735 Montgomery Street, Oroville. Agenda items are brought to the Council by residents, staff and council-members.

At council meetings, residents and City staff may provide input, recommendations, and technical data to help the Council make an informed decision. The Council then discusses and either approves, modifies or rejects the agenda item. Depending on the action of the Council, the City Administrator and City staff carry out the Council's policy.
